Emerald Ash Borer

Asked March 17, 2019, 10:01 AM EDT

What is the effect of Emamectin Benzoate on bees? A trees care company has proposed to treat my ash trees with Emamectin Benzoate. I've heard from other neighbors that this chemical has a deleterious effect on honey bees. Can you provide some accurate information on the subject?
